Overview by Erinn Morgan

This ski area defines the meaning of "hidden gem." With over 2,200 feet of vertical rise, 1,100 acres of skiable terrain, virtually no lift lines, and an accessible backcountry paradise on The Backside, it is particularly miraculous that this Idaho resort remains relatively undiscovered. But location is everything, and this ski area, operating on the 9,271-foot Mount Bonneville in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest since 1959, is dead center in the middle of a ski resort triangle that includes the powerhouses Jackson Hole, Snowbird, and Sun Valley.

In addition to its lack of behemoth-resort marketing, a remote location complete with a white-knuckle access road have sealed the deal for this local's ski area. Rumor has it that Sun Valley pioneer Averell Harriman actually considered Mount Bonneville as a site for his ski area, but difficulty with access roads drove him farther north. Too bad for him, but Pebble Creek's local following couldn't be happier about it.

At first glance, this mountain's layout appears fairly simple to decipher, with a straightforward, respectable network of green, blue, and black runs sprinkled on the front side. But adventurous types that are backcountry ready (which translates to split board, telemark, or AT gear and skins, plus beacon, probe, and transceiver) can disembark at the top of Skyline lift and hike up into the challenging terrain of the Caribou-Targhee National Forest. Eight hundred lung-busting feet later, the reward of Pebble Creek's Backside presents itself, boasting sprawling undeveloped bowls, glades, and steeps covered in pristine powder.
